The Sierra Club is a nonprofit organization that focuses on protecting natural and wildlife resources, monitoring legislation, and educating the public about environmental issues. You do not necessarily have to be an environmental major to be involved with the Sierra Club - we are looking for students within any major that are willing to work hard, learn about the issues, and to bring new ideas and enthusiasm to their work.
As a grassroots environmental nonprofit, the Maryland Sierra Club offers many internship opportunities for those passionate about advocating for a safer, healthier planet. At our office conveniently located on Route 1, students can take advantage of diverse openings in office management & administration, outdoor education, political environmental advocacy, communications & marketing, web design, community organizing, event planning, and policy research.
Our interns become part of the office team and are essential to accomplishing many of the Chapter’s environmental conservation goals. Working side by side with staff and lead volunteers, interns get the opportunity to see how a grassroots non profit works, gain valuable real world experience, and become the next generation of activist leaders.
For Winter and Spring 2019, we have the following internships available:
- Administrative Assistant
- Clean Energy
- Beyond Natural Gas Organizing
- Communications / Web Media / Radio
- Conservation Outings
- Invasive Plant Removal / Stewardship Field
- Transportation Organizing
